Charity Classic supports Vernon hospital

The event’s title sponsor this year is the Paul Docksteader Foundation, which has signed on for three years.

A major fundraiser that will bolster health care in the North Okanagan is already sold out.

All spaces are booked for the eighth annual Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation Charity Classic at Predator Ridge Sept. 10.

“This year’s tournament aims to raise $180,000 to support the emergency and cardio/respiratory departments,” said Sue Beaudry, the foundation’s director of development.

Anyone interested in participating can call 250-558-1362 and be placed on a wait list

The event’s title sponsor this year is the Paul Docksteader Foundation, which has signed on for three years.

“We are extremely thankful for our growing partnership with the Paul Docksteader Foundation,” said Beaudry.

“Their commitment to the title sponsorship of our Charity Classic for the next three years is a testament to their caring and dedication to making a better community.”

As venue sponsor, Predator Ridge, through support from its members and home owners, continues to make a donation of the course and a $10,000 prize table for the event.

Since its inception in 2009, the Golf Classic has raised $1,178,100 net to support health care needs at the hospital.
